His head was a city
Of paper buildings 
And the echoes that remained 
Of old friends and lovers 
Their features bleeding

She said she never envisioned him the type of person capable of such deceit 

And they carried on like long division 
And it was clear with every page

Without a remain remain remain remainder

He had sworn not to be what he'd been before 

To be the remain remain remain remainder
